For all those who have died in war
« on: August 03, 2014, 11:45:18 AM »
Tomorrow marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I in Europe, when over 16 million soldiers and civilians died over 4 years. Here in Britain we are asked to turn out all lights from 10-11pm (British Summer Time)and light a candle in memory of all those who died and to pray for peace.

The poem quoted is said every November 11th on Remembrance day, and on the nearest Sunday at special services - it has meant so much more to me after I said it over the grave of a soldier killed in Afghanistan who was younger than any of my children.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
(Psalm 46 v1)
